    I had their Heartbreak Sandwich (I think that's the name), and it was a good mouthful. Good quantity and taste (they give you barbeque sauce with it). Total props, and worth it, as a traveler!!!

    Awesome diner feel and great lively atmosphere. Perfect for a quick breakfast in the morning if you are heading out for the day.

    I would only come back for the biscuits & gravy and to sit at the bar and watch the chefs. I ordered scrambled eggs add cheese and they definitely gave me my $ worth of cheese.

    Lori's Country Breakfast was great & filling. Atmosphere here transports you to 50s. Service awesome! Umberto checked in to see if everythings ok & came back later to refill my OJ with my asking!

    Bring a friend. You can't sit at a booth by yourself. I was told to rub elbows at the diner counter. Its like eating on the transit bus at its busiest time. Took a whole 15 seconds to decide "To Go!"

    Awesome food! We had BLT and Patty Melt and they were wonderful! Best part was the shake though! Great diner atmosphere as well.

    Those sweet potato fries? So good. Get them as a side while you decide what to order. Don't skimp on the condiments.

    Had the Lori's breakfast. Portion was HUGE. Pancakes were hot and fluffy. Bacon had a good flavor but wasn't very crispy. Food came out at a reasonable speed. Overall a decent experience.

    The Ole Omelete is very good. Also, this place is one the best in a 4 block radius

    Their "signature" burger has good fresh veggies, but the beff is way to far from being a good one. Very dry and without real beef taste. Bacon was overcooked.

    Another crappy 24-hr diner. Generally Pinecrest is slightly better, but it is what it is. Don't come to these if you don't have to due to time of day.

    Jeezz... Don't come here. We got some mutant animal to eat, that wasn't chicken at all... The staff was bored and impolite and the suggested tip on the bill is about 30%!!! The worst dinner in SF.

    Rude service. We were waiting for a table and no-one approached us. When a table finished we attempted to take a seat (party of 3) but were not allowed to do it because the table was for 5 people.

    If you're looking for a real American Diner, this is the perfect place. Bad chicken, bad fries, not healthy. Typical American, is it?

    De la hamburguesa de la casa me quedo con el sabor, el resto a parte de ser una ración generosa no me aportó nada nuevo, el local ambientado en los '50 esta poco dejado, los desayunos son su fuerte.
